User-Centric Product Management with Jack Moore, Qventus | Pragmatic Talks

Jack Moore is the Product Manager for Qventus, a platform that helps hospital teams make better operational decisions in real-time. He has had an inspiring product journey. He is a product person with a passion for impactful, high leverage data products. He has experience in and a passion for delivering products ranging from back-end data platforms and ETL’s, data science and machine learning-driven product, and visualization and reporting functionality. He says “My core values are empathy, honesty, diligence, and flexibility.”  
We invited Jack for a one-on-one Product Talk to help our audience gain real-world insights on successful user-centric product management. We had some wonderful discussions about writing better requirements and user stories and mapping the success of user-driven features.
According to Jack, the real job of a product manager is to change the world in some small way for someone. He says “the job is not to build the products, i.e. ‘what people like’ but to build the experiences, i.e. ‘what people love’. Your products should enable these experiences to scale.
He adds, “Put users a center of everything we do”. At the end of the day if the user thinks that the product is not giving value then we have failed.
Want to know how to build products around the needs of a user? Check out our exclusive Product Talk with Jack Moore to learn what it needs to acquire a successful user-centric product management.

To illustra

To illustrate how having this core value can change things for you and your product, he takes a job at Airbnb. He mentions ‘Airbnb, built a great product putting up users in the center. Brian Chesky, CEO of Airbnb created an incredible product focusing completely on user experience rather than their website. Airbnb strives to have their customers contact the company and demand the 6th star be added to their 5-star review because the experience was so good.’
Jack uses a technique called user story mapping which helps product managers get away from thinking about what are the things he needs to build and instead think about what is the experience he wants to enable.
Jack explains a product manager must not just be customer focused he must be customer obsessed. He says “build a product that people love and recommend to their friends.”

Flipped Classroom


Our learners learn by discussing and debating on real-world problems and are actively involved in the solution design process.

Conventional classroom

Sage on Stage

  • A teacher shares the knowledge via live presentations
  • Teachers are at the center of the learning and considered sage on stage
  • Knowledge transfer is one-way and the focus is on knowledge retention
  • Learners don’t get to discuss their ideas or opinions in the class
  • Hence, most learners are unable to apply these concepts in their everyday work life
  • Great for scenarios, where knowledge acquisition and retention is the only focus

Flipped classroom

Guide on side

  • Learners are the center of the universe
  • Classes are meant for healthy discussions and debates on topics
  • Learners go through the material on their own provided by the mentors
  • Mentors work as guide on the side, with the learners
  • Learners develop skills on problem solving, critical thinking and self-learning – the 21st century skills that employers look for
  • Great for scenarios where application skills matter
  • 21st century skills require guide on the side. Simply acquiring knowledge is worthless now.
